The following is a poem written by Jean Wittock, a classmate of Ethel's:
There's a vacant seat in our school,
which no other girl can fill,
She has gone to Heaven according
to God's will,
A sword has pierced her parent's
when she her last breath
But her good deeds, not forgotten,
are written in Life's Book.
